Good and effective parenting has tough competition these days. For middle school girls the voices of our culture are loud, whereas parents' voices are often drowned out by the din of peers, the social media and technology. Psychologist Dr. Diana Paolitto, a twenty-year veteran of working in middle schools with adolescents, parents and staff, will discuss how parents can help to build strength and character in their young adolescent daughters. Based on her career gleaning practical experience inside middle schools coupled with her research in her co-authored book, "Promoting Moral Growth: From Piaget to Kohlberg", she will offer practical guidance and a compelling rationale for positive engagement with one's children during this critical time of life.
